The Bad Buy Book: skirts
Welcome to September’s edition of The Bad Buy Book! This month’s theme is: skirts!
The Bad Buy Book is a series hosted by Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge and Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style. We wanted to establish together something fun and new. We both talked about our,,Sitting Shoes,, and so we came up with the idea for The Bad Buy Book!
We all do our best to look great in our outfits, choose the right accessories, the right makeup, the perfect shoes, and wait for the best light to shoot the most flattering outfit photos. And now we are asking you to show us the items you don’t feel your very best in. You know, those ,,Sitting Shoes,, that dress that is actually not quite your color, the skirt that is a size too small but the saleswoman said it looked amazing. We all own those items! And while they may look fabulous, they don’t always feel fabulous! So we want you to show us your bad buys and tell us the story about them! What made you purchase the item? And why do you dislike it now? And why not share them with us? We buy these things for a reason then hide them in the back of the closet. Now it’s their turn to share the limelight.
Every month on the 15 th, we will both publish a post sharing the photos you have sent us along with a few sentences about the bad buy. Photo submissions will be due by the 1 st of each month so we have time to edit and compile all of the entries. At the end of each post we will let you know the theme for the next month’s post. Photos and the story of your ”Bad Buy” can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please put”Bad Buy” in the subject line.
So, time to take a look at our Bad Buy Skirts!
First is my dear co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge“When I saw this faux leather pencil skirt, I had to have it. Because, well, a black leather pencil skirt is completely bad ass. But only if it fits properly. Which it doesn’t. It is crazy tight around the midsection. I can’t sit or breathe in it! But the next size up was much too big. And how the heck do you get those horrible creases out of the faux leather? I haven’t a clue.”
( I iron faux leather skirts Shelbee! Inside out!)
Next the always lovely Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style
“Well, it’s another episode of what Jodie can buy that really doesn’t work—ha ha!! ( Jodie’s words, not ours!)
Here’s my maxi skirt that I bought last year at the thrift store! I wanted a knit maxi skirt, and I love the colors, but it just didn’t work well for my style. There was too much going on in the print, and I never felt comfortable wearing it!!
I suppose I could have tried other options to see if something would work, but I gave up and donated it!”
And finally me with my bad Buy skirt. I bought this one on a market in Rye on a holiday. Very cheap! I fall for cheap, isn’t that awfull! But I only like the colors, nothing else. It’s cotton and I don’t like cotton. It doesn’t form to your body.This is also a bad buy skirt, it’s actually a very boring color and I never wear it as a skirt. I wore it here as a dress! But this one I bought when I was still working and got 50% discount, so I bought a lot of clothing then………still do……without the discount…..
That’s it for this month! Hope you liked to read about our Bad Buys and that you will participate next month!
The October theme will be: Jackets!
